Assignments for Each Week of eLearning:
Every student is responsible for completing 3 lessons on Readtheory.org.
Pearland ISD has asked for students to read 30 minutes a day and document their reading in a reading log. Along with your reading log, the ELA teachers will have students respond to two prompts per week. The prompt will be posted to Maldonado’s and MacPhail’s Edmodo classes, as well as our class websites.
Directions for setting up your log in Office365 are attached. You will keep the same log from week to week and just keep adding on to the document. Share your log in Office365 with both Mrs. MacPhail and Mrs. Maldonado.
